GboroBravo: Someone said earlier its being streamed on the ESPN website
dang bad luck KK was on
Can anyone help me out with streaming audio for the game since PTV isn’t working and ESPN 2 is blacked out?
I’m Not hating on Medlen but I don’t Think Medlen will do well going against this offense…I think he will let the Jitters of going against the Yankee offense get to him
I know I would…
god i hope he is ok. cmon, lets get medlen some runs!
Time Warner in my area doesn’t carry it for some reason Train Wreck.
I’m blacked out and having to watch it on css/peachtree. It looks like atari. I still haven’t seen the ball actually hit kk. So no it’s not bad.

Nice contact kelly, cough cough
Combined Perfect Game?
aawwww crap KK was cruising
of course it’s not hd
Looked like he spit out blood on the way out. Wouldn’t be surprised if it bruised his throat or something.
Crap! I guess he isn’t “aight.”
Kamakaze Might’ve Pitched Better tonight than he did in his last start…
It’s About Time They Play some Good Batter Intro Music for Diory!
tomahawkin, i believe he has those issues worked out. i for one think he’s talented and will step it up. i guess we’ll see.
Medlen cant handle pressure yet
YIKES holy crap I hope he’s okay. Joba, you fat ba$stard, eat a salad or two how ’bout it.
Welp. Here comes Medlen the bag of nerves vs the most revered lineup in baseball. Dammit.
June 24th, 20097:55 pm
Medlen’s gonna get ROCKED!
Greaaaaaaat. Gosh I hope Medlen is able to keep himself relaxed and keep us in the game.
This will be a big test for Medlen.
Combined Perfect Game Would Be Too Sweet…
The League Is About due for another one…
It would be too sweet if it came against the Bankees!
I am in athens, ga and they usually black out the espn telecast but not tonight.
June 24th, 20097:56 pm
KK didnt really look like he was hurting that bad. Maybe it is just for precautionary reasons.
What an @$$hole. That’s the only way he was going to beat Kawakami.
What a bunch of ****.
Good to have Omar back after the All Star Break. Chip and Joe say he got the cast off today.
June 24th, 20097:57 pm
Agreed…I’m having Flashbacks of that Colorado Start…
Nice hit Mclouth
who is this guy batting? where is woodward?
Good thing Kelly or Diory didn’t get on base. Wouldn’t want that.
JJ (WTH is Jeff Bennett still on the roster???)
Way to go Nate!!
Good hit there by McLouth. I wanna see some 2-out magic here boys!!!
McClouth is the man. Thank you!
There We Go Nate-Dawg!!!
RHR – “the most revered lineup in baseball” – maybe not so much this year, with a .200 hitter batting cleanup. GO NATE!!!
Is there really a reason not to at least let KK warm up? Then decide?
I know it could be serious, but no reason not to let him try.
Hope KK is ok. I don’t know if Medlen’s ready for this type of pressure. Remember his first two starts.
June 24th, 20097:58 pm
Did y’all really see him spitting out blood? I was too mad to look. Damn Damn Damn.
Alright top of lineup do your thang.
I don’t know how much “pressure” there will be on Medlen. I mean, have you been paying attention to the Yankees offense as of late?
Yeah right Mixxo, Medlen’s going to kick their @$$es.
I can’t believe that. What a punk.
I know it’s not on paper, Jim, but in Medlen’s 22 year old head I’m sure it is.
June 24th, 20097:59 pm
Doc, they already pinch hit for him. He’s done for the day.
Let’s hope KK is OK.
I think Medlen will do just fine.
I hope Kawakami is alright. That looked sick and not in a good way
Hope KK is alright, hopefully medlen will continue the good pitching.
Can we all hold hands and say a prayer for KK
June 24th, 20098:00 pm
The key is throwing strikes for KM. Can’t get behind in the count.
I was thinking about the pirates lineup if they kept bay nady mclouth
Maybe Medlen will surprise me, I’d love that. Go get ‘em Kris Medlen!
June 24th, 20098:01 pm
Why is everyone so negative on Medlen without even giving him a chance? Let him pitch an inning at least, for God’s sake
By the way Mixxo, I wasn’t calling you a punk. I was referring of course to that douche Chambermaid.
Oh, I burned him. No really I did.
Still 2-0 after 3 in Tampa.
KK is quickly becoming one of my favorite pitchers. The guy battles. I hope he doesn’t miss a start. He’s been dealin as of late.
BTW, KJ Blows!
I hope Medlen wears his Depends on the mound against the Yankees
rob from sc
I change my mind. The hell with the big bat. Keep Vazquez and Medlen and the rest of out pitching.
RHR – maybe I’m being overly optimistic, but I have faith – he needs to show Bobby he should be pitching a whole lot more.
that sucks about kk. i’m following on game day tonight since i got to watch the whole game last night. i hope medlen plunks a yank sometime tonight. go get ‘em eric!
Who says Medlen can’t handle pressure. That was his 1st start. He was excellent in his 3rd start and in an extra inning game against the Pirates. If anything he might suck because Bobby hasn’t pitched him in a year…
Sometimes the pressure is imagined, and not actually real.
June 24th, 20098:02 pm
Great, our best pitcher is hurt. C’mon Medlen.
I can’t believe those Yankee fans. It’s sickening.
man this is gonna be nerve wracking
Try spectralmedia.org for cricket. They provide mms links at very cheap rates.
Afridi was the man of the tournament. Also glad that younis khan has retired from T20. I am sick of people dissing T20.
June 24th, 20098:03 pm
The key for Medlen is first of all, slow down, second of all, forget the faces and the names, don’t even look at them, just watch Mac and throw, and….Mac and Chipper need to get at him like they did before.
And the damn Braves fans need to get up and drown out those stupid chants.
I’m SO mad right now. Man what a tough break.
I know you aren’t talking badly about my boy are you?
That’s right Yankees. Nice try.
Keep your mouths shut.
June 24th, 20098:04 pm
That was unnecessary harassment there from Suckliffe. Yunel had PLENTY of time and he just wanted to make sure he made a good throw.
KK didnt look like it killed him, you saw that Mcann asked him if he was OK and KK nodded.
I have faith too, Jim. I like Medlen a lot, he has a lot of potential, just wish he didn’t have to come in unexpectedly like that vs the Yankees. Plus, I’m mad and maybe a little bit irrational. lol
June 24th, 20098:05 pm
Oh my god made tex look bad
Medlen strikes out the BIG CHOKER!
Ok, Medlen works just fine, lol.
Chop It Up All-star
Who is this dude to bagging on Escobar – geez.
Whew!!! Cy Medlen out there in that inning.
haha…Medlen gets Tex on 3 pitches….Awesome!
strike out of the billion dollar man……awesome! Get ‘Em Medlin!!!
Wow. Go ahead little Medlen.
Little KK is dealing..
“Dead Bats Society”? That’s embarrassing. The New York media is retarded. Those writers probably never lifted a bat.
WHAT DID I SAY!? BRING IT KRIS!
Medlen has a good half inning
DOB, how bout an update on KK, like now.
great work for Medlen. I have the game muted. Please let me know any update on Kawakami
He pitched right where Mcann is telling him to pitch.
June 24th, 20098:06 pm
McCann definitely read the scouting report on Tex. He called for a curveball in the dirt and to Medlen’s credit, he hit his spot.
Good start for Medlen.
(McCann is spelled with two c’s, BTW.)
Put Medlen back in the rotation. You can’t stop him.
June 24th, 20098:07 pm
Don’t get me wrong, I’m pullin’ for the kid.
But, he looked like he was about to pee his uni when he first got to the mound. :facepalm:
He’ll settle down.
If his control is working, that is a very, very good sign.
One pressbox wag just said, “Hey, if Kawakami’s hurt, I hear Tom Glavine might be available.”
Medlen knows that Hanosnn is watching him
Dang! I missed it! Looked good on the Gameday, though…
Love it when our pitchers hit their spots!
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
